A notorious Indian bandit was shot dead by police in India this week. The bandit, known as Dadua, had evaded capture for decades. He was wanted for murder, kidnapping and extortion. Indian history is filled with tales of Robin Hood-like bandits who are supported by the poorer castes of society. Reporter Scott Carney speaks with Alex Chadwick about Dadua and the myths surrounding him.
